Absolute electronic insulating gas density measurement based on the oscillating quartz principle

Starting in the mid-90s, Trafag introduced gas density sensors. They are the first choice when continuous and long-term, drift-free insulating gas density measurement and data acquisition are required. Exposure of an oscillating quartz to gases of different densities causes a shift and damping of the resonant frequency. The insulating gas densities of SF6 as well as those of alternative insulating gases can thus be measured directly and electronically. The operational reliability and operational safety of gas-insulated high-voltage switchgear can only be guaranteed if the required gas density in the pressure compartments is maintained. Leakage would endanger the safety of the switchgear and at the same time violate environmental regulations. SF6 in particular is…

How do medical power supplies help protect patients and hospital staff?

In medical technology, the protection of patients and hospital staff has top priority. For this reason, medical power supplies are subject to strict requirements regarding safety, reliability and EMC. In this blog article you will find out how medical technology can benefit from the experience gained in machine building and system engineering. Power supplies have to convert voltage as safely and efficiently as possible, while ensuring smooth operation over many years and in the tightest of spaces. Although this is a principle that applies to medical technology and to machine building alike, it is the industrial engineering segments where standard power supplies that meet these requirements are much more widespread. In turn, this…

High-precision monitoring of the insulating gas density with reference gas comparison

High-precision monitoring of the insulating gas density with reference gas comparison The reference gas comparison principle was developed and patented by Trafag in the 1980s - and has become the leading industry standard for insulating gas density monitoring in high-voltage technology. If density monitoring must meet high requirements for reliability, accuracy, stability and durability, there is no way around is this fully temperature-compensated principle. Gas density monitoring: temperature compensation is a must Density measurement in pressurized, gas-insulated chambers is all about physics, because pressure, density and temperature have a specific relationship. The relationship is defined by isochores (constant change of state) for each specific insulating gas. The insulating performance of a gas-insulated chamber…

EMC-KEL-U | Split EMC cable entry frames

for shielding cables with connectors The EMC cable entry frames EMC-KEL-U are based on the KEL-U and KEL-E. Due to a conductive surface, disturbances in the cable shields on the control cabinet can be easily dissipated. Field bound disturbances are derived by the metallisation. The cable entry system is easy to install. Cable grommets are placed into compartments and are securely fixed to the frame during assembly. The EMC-KEL-U frames match exactly the cut-out dimensions for 16- and 24-pin standard industrial connectors. Either a cut-out of 36 mm or 46 mm in height can be chosen depending on the cables being routed. The single-row versions EMC-KEL-E are particularly suited for flat connectors. The…
